I don't play tenis in real life. Infact I dont like to play it and I rarley watch it. Yet for some reason I always follow it and watch highlights and know the rules and history very well. I LOVE tenis games and this is a VERY good one. The single world tour mode is fun and comprable with Top Spin 2..even though I kinda like TS2 a bit more because in VT3 there are only like 10 opponents the whole time and every time you make it to another rank platu they get harder...kinda odd. The online is a lot of fun, but many people use Duke and King (2 unlockable characters you can get in tournement mode) so its tough to get a fair match up. Regardless this is a good game with fantastic graphics. Fun achievements I got 800 in about 1 1/2 weeks...but I played ALOT. So its not a quick boosting game. Enjoy!
